Directions to VDNKH All-Russian Exhibition Centre

VDNKH for short - is a huge complex of pavilions, with a total area covering over one hundred and thirty square meters. It is the largest exhibition centre in Moscow and each year there are more than one hundred and fifty specialized exhibitions with a total attendance of about fourteen million people!

VDNKH was originally opened in 1939 and was called the 'All-Union Agricultural Exhibition'. In 1959 it was renamed to 'Exhibition of Economic Achievements of the USSR.' It got its current name in 1992.

The VDNKH has numerous important historical sites serving as a reminder of Russia’s heroic past. These include a monument by the sculptor Vera Mukhina 'Worker and Collective Farm Girl', as well as fountains, the 'Stone Flower' and the 'best man of the Soviet peoples.'

Just as priceless is the building housing the All-Russian Institute of Technical Aesthetics, which gave life to the direction futurodizayna and cinema 'Cinema Circuit.' Exhibitions are held even in the reconstructed YAK-42.

Close to the VDNKH is the Mall of Astronauts and the monument dedicated to the Conquerors of the Cosmos, as well as the famous hotel 'Cosmos'. The VDNKH Exhibition Centre also has dedicated pavilions to other CIS countries such as Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Azerbaijan.

The VDNKH was used as a backdrop many times for famous local films such as 'The Foundling', 'Shining Path', 'Pig and the shepherd' and 'Song of Moscow.'

You will find people zooming around on roller skates and bicycles across the vast area that the venue covers. The VDNKH is also home to many rides and carousels, shooting galleries and cafes. People come here to relax with their families and, of course, to visit the specialised exhibitions dedicated to jewelery, furs, food, cats and dogs, equipment and much more.

Unfortunately, some historic objects at the VDNKH were permanently lost over time but visiting the venue is a way to continue preserving what remains to this day. Find out more information about current exhibitions at the VDNKH by visiting their official website (link is above in the contact details section). Tickets can be bought from the respective box offices at the various VDNKH pavilions. The exhibition grounds are open to all visitors without any restrictions.
